Elspeth McLean, an award-winning Australian artist based in Canada shows off her artistic talent by painting thousands of little dots on the smooth and perfectly round-shaped ocean rocks.
For those who have not heard of mandalas, (according to Google, Sanskrit for “circle” or “discoid object”) it is a geometric design that holds a great deal of symbolism in Hindu and Buddhist cultures. In their most basic form, mandalas are circles contained within a square and arranged into sections that are all organized around a single, central point.
Her hand-painted mandala stones are exquisite and noteworthy, and they are sold on her Etsy shop. She also promotes her stone mandala business on her Facebook to inform about the availability of products to her fans and customers.
Her stone mandalas get high demands and get sold out even before she could restock them back. McLean, who creates sophisticated customized stone mandalas, stated “I am still painting stones and try to include a few to my boutique daily at random. This way it leaves it up to chance.”
McLean’s paintwork is called “Dotillism”. Her talent facilitates her to voice her soul. She says, “By adding luminous and picturesque colorants and complicated style of working, the masterpiece I design becomes a sincere indication of my life experience. I tend to focus on the more exhilarating and overwhelming views of this world because, in my opinion, I believe that there is already enough darkness. This mentality aids be to be vigilant, at the moment and I strive to see the optimistic facets in any circumstance.”
She claimed that she finds it to be “a meditative and grounding encounter.” Her infinite love for art turned into a successful career.
